There are several ways of touring Italy; by car, train, bus [pullman] motorbike, bicycle and even plane. You can even walk (although you won't cover that much ground if it is the summer and the Italians don't do much walking themselves!). The method depends on your own tastes and what you want to achieve. Public transport is still very cheap but you need to know how to use it. The Italian train network is generally reliable and English options are available at many ticket machines in principal railway stations. Additionally, you will discover that Italians are generally very helpful, particularly when you attempt to ask them in Italian.
The main airports in hidden Italy are Bologna, Rimini, Perugia, Ancona and Pescara. Hidden Italy can be reached via Rome's two airports and accessed by hire car or public transport. Many tourists arrive with their own car and drive from northern Europe. We have also done this and it is quite feasible, providing you allow time for the long journey, navigation, fatigue and road delays.
For those living in south-eastern and eastern Europe, it is also possible to arrive by ferry through Ancona. The port has a direct rail service, offering links to Jesi and Rome. While the road from the port to the autostrada is not the easiest to navigate, it should not take longer than 25 minutes to reach a junction on the autostrada.
